Industrial shipping The HM-Series are excellent tools for night-time navigation. ship detection through light fog and darkness. conditions such as heavy overcast can limit its effectiveness. Because the system requires at least a minimum level of ambient light. Police and law enforcement Police. Thermal imaging cameras are not affected by the amount of light so that you will not be blinded when looking at a light source. but even starlight can produce an image on a cloudless night.A large number of applications Thanks to the extremely affordable FLIR Systems HM-Series. what is happening in the dark.. too much light may overwhelm the system and reduce its effectiveness. Image intensification does require a certain level of ambient light. Yachting Also private yachts can benefit from the power of thermal imaging: night-time navigation. They work by detecting the heat energy being radiated and need no light at all to produce a clear image in the darkest environments. ashore and on the water. anti-piracy. man overboard searches. Thermal imaging: is not affected by the light and produces a clear image. also referred to as I2 technology. anti-piracy. amplifies small amounts of visible light thousands of times so that objects can be seen at night. Coastguard Coastguard and rescue workers use the HM-Series as a valuable tool: man overboard searches. The HM-Series lets you search large areas quickly. 7 . Thermal imaging cameras like the HMSeries offer substantial benefits over image intensification.. shipboard security and anti-piracy applications. Thermal imaging versus image intensification (I2) Finding someone in the water after dark with a search light is more a matter of luck than skill. Similarly. security.. . .. Thermal imaging: person hiding in bushes is clearly visible since thermal contrast is practically impossible to mask. Image intensification: image is saturated by looking directly to a light source. customs and other law enforcement agencies need to see. Image intensification. Image intensification: person hiding in bushes is practically invisible. more and more users can now benefit from the power of thermal imaging cameras. shipboard security.
